Hello,

I have a simple question. I have a Macbook Pro Retina 15 inch and recently purchased a 24 inch Asus Monitor. typically run my macbook and Asus as dual monitors. My Macbook usually being the primary. I have started to use the Macbook in clamshell mode recently and use the Asus as my lone primary monitor. My question is it bad to run the macbook in clamshell mode or is it safe for the hardware? I mean overheating issues etc. Thanks for the advice.

QUOTE Thanks

No problems at all running in clamshell mode. There's plenty of room around the rMBP to allow air flow so you should be good..
